We went to Pebble Beach and drove along 17 Mile Drive. We got out and took a picture right here. Hopefully one day Tony will be able to take another picture here while he is actually playing this really expensive course.
The famous "Lone Cyprus"
Spy Glass golf course is in the background. It was so beautiful.
We went back to fisherman's wharf and had lunch at Old Fisherman's Grotto. We ate probably the best clam chowder I've ever had...except for yours Annelee. We were stuffed.
That evening we went to make a bonfire on the beach but the tide came up so quickly we had to abort. We drove along the beach and watched the sun go down.
Almost every night we were there Brooke and Mike played games with us. I always thought Tony and I loved board games but these guys really love them. They own hundreds of games. It was so fun to finally get to play games with the real "gamers." They taught us a new game each night. My favorite was Agricola. It was really involved but really fun.
Sadly, day 8 was our final day. We packed up early and headed for home. We were going to sleep in Reno again but we decided to just push through and we made it all the way home in one day. The girls did pretty well on the drive home.
So I wanted to say that Brooke is my eldest cousin. She is the oldest child of my mom's older sister Le Anne. Brooke and Mike got married when I was like 12 or 13 or something and Mike is in the Army so they have lived all over the U.S. and in Germany. We really didn't get to see them very often. In fact, in the 7 years we have been married Tony had only met Mike once. It was so much fun to spend time with them and get to them better. Tony and Mike really hit it off and I, of course, loved spending time with Brookie.
Brooke and Mike,
This trip was just what we needed. We seriously had so much fun. You live in one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. Thank you for letting us stay with you so that we could witness it. We love you guys so much.
